Shark: Episode 13

Hey guys, I’m jumping into the Shark pool, and it happens to be a pretty eventful episode. What can I say? Sometimes the universe just likes me. We finally get to the bottom of The Picture that kills everyone who sees it, and both sides step it up on the danger meter. But the thing we’ve really been waiting for starts to happen, when emotions—or is it hormones?—start to bubble up to the surface, and begin to mess with carefully laid plans…

 
EPISODE 13 RECAP

Yi-soo finally connects one very important dot: the bookshop ajusshi is Clicky the Assassin, and he’s been right under their noses all this time. He smiles menacingly and heads back in, where the ajusshi asks if he’s looking for a particular book.

Yi-soo just comes right out and says he’s looking for a book about the independence movement and great-grandpa Jo. And then he says he’s also interested in books about professional hit men, while staring right at the possibly poison pen in the ajusshi’s hand.

The ajusshi says he isn’t very interested in books about failed assassins, and Yi-soo laughs, agreeing that the best hit men are never caught, and are probably living quiet, seemingly innocuous lives among them.

He leaves, but not without pausing and lingering so suspiciously that I’m half expecting Clicky to throw a poison pen at his neck like a dart.

Meanwhile, Joon-young’s dad sits in his office and decides to call his boss to say that he has something urgent to discuss. The phone chain ends up where all information in this universe goes—straight to Grandpa Jo.

Grandpa Jo calls Prosecutor Oh to try and smooth over his nerves, but he seems determined to go through with his plan, whatever it is, and puts his copy of The Picture in an envelope.

Yi-soo waits till the bookshop is empty and sneaks back in to do some snooping. He doesn’t find much except HA—a drawer full of pens. In no other situation would a desk drawer full of pens seem so ominous.

He clicks one and then another, and frantically stars scrawling on a scratch pad to test them out. There’s no way he’s gonna find the poison one among these, right? They’re all ink, but he starts to panic and runs out before he gets through the whole drawer.

He drives like a madman and calls Yi-hyun to make sure she’s okay, and breathes a sigh of relief when she says that she’s with Mom.

He makes up a lame excuse about calling because he was driving past the juice store and thought of her, which is almost worse than telling her that a poison pen assassin might be dogging her.

Anyway, it makes Mom curious, and she mentions it to Dad. I’ve never known Detective Byun to drop a good lead, so I’m sure he’ll follow up, even if it’s just to make sure that Yi-hyun doesn’t have a creepy admirer, right?

Yi-soo arrives home, but as soon as he steps out of his car, a guy sneaks up behind him and knifes him in the gut. He fights the henchman off and threatens him with his own knife to say who sent him. Grandpa Jo, naturally.

Yi-soo lets him go and then just staggers upstairs instead of going to the hospital. Gah, are you going to stitch up your own wounds? He gets out of the elevator sweating bullets and bleeding out of his stomach, but then finds Hae-woo standing outside his door waiting for him.

He crosses his arms across his chest, like that’s somehow going to hide a gaping flesh wound, and… it actually works. It works? She doesn’t see it, and insists they have a chat. He gives her the brush-off and turns to go inside, and when she grabs his arm to stop him, that’s when she finally sees the blood.

She gasps and tells him to go to the hospital, but he refuses and just heads inside to deal with it himself like a badass. She follows him in, which is when she sees the painting hanging on his wall.

Her gaze lingers on it for a moment, but then Yi-soo squirming and pain (and bleeding all over his white leather couch—the horror!) sends her running over to him.

She grabs the first aid kit despite his attempts to get her to leave, and starts tending to the wound. She begs him to go seek medical attention, but he just watches her silently for a charged moment, and then pulls her close for a kiss. Whoa.

They pull away and search each other’s eyes, and he goes in for more. Rawr. Yunno, this guy moves like molasses in every other department, but I never see him hesitating with the kisses. I just love this lingering second where their lips pull apart, but their foreheads are still touching, like they might go back for thirds.

When he stops to look at her, he sees that she’s crying. She pushes his hand away and gets up to leave. She stops to say that she’ll let his secretary know about the stab wound, but he promises to get treated.

And then he turns to her: “Hae-woo-ya…” Omo. He said her name. In banmal. Has it been twelve years since he did that? He lets it just sit there and doesn’t finish the thought, and she walks away. I know I shouldn’t want her to stay but I want her to stay.

And from her apartment, Secretary Jang listens with a long face.

Hae-woo returns home, tensing up as soon as she sees Joon-young in the driveway. Kissing your not-a-husband can do that to you.

But he’s got a crisis of his own when he hears the voicemail left by Dad, in which he apologizes for everything and says this is the best choice he could make under the circumstances. It sounds a lot like a suicide note.

He panics and Hae-woo goes with him to look for Dad, trying to reassure him that it won’t be as bad as he’s thinking. Prosecutor Oh leaves his office that night and says a quiet farewell to the security guard, who’s retiring after his shift tonight.

They arrive outside the building just in time to see him get into a cab, and Joon-young turns around to follow him. As Prosecutor Oh heads over to confess the whole truth to his boss, we see Detective Oh hand him The Picture in a flashback.

“President Jo is a fake.” He shows him the picture of the young man who’s supposed to be Grandpa Jo in the photo with his father, but Detective Oh says it’s not him. He knows it isn’t proof in and of itself, which is why he’s searching for hard evidence. But all he knows is, Han Yi-soo died to protect this photo.

He adds that Prosecutor Oh restored his faith in prosecutors once, and asks him to prove that his trust was justified. Prosecutor Oh hangs his head in shame now as he thinks back to that request.

He arrives at his stop and gets ready to cross the street, when Joon-young and Hae-woo arrive. They call out to him after he’s already started to cross the street…

…and when he turns to face them, a Truck of Doom drives straight through the red light and careens into him. Gah, I knew that crosswalk was bad news.

Joon-young screams and runs over to Dad, who’s lying there bleeding to death. Hae-woo calls Soo-hyun to trace it on traffic cams as we see the truck speed away. It looks like Clicky the Assassin behind the wheel, though he’s wearing a mask.

Hae-woo puts a hand on Joon-young’s shoulder as they wait for Dad to come out of surgery, and he urges her not to lose that truck. He wonders, “Could it be Yi-soo? Is he repaying them in the exact same way?” Ooh, chilling thought. I’d almost prefer if you were right.

Hae-woo can do nothing but say that it’s probably not Yi-soo, and watch with a nervous expression as Joon-young vows that this is crossing a line—if it is Yi-soo, he’ll never forgive him.

Meanwhile Yi-soo comes out of the hospital after getting treated for his stab wound, and Friend texts him the news that Prosecutor Oh was attacked tonight. The family gets news that he survived, but he’s in a coma and will likely not live a normal life if he wakes up.

Detective Byun follows the truck trail, which leads him to an abandoned warehouse. Clicky just saunters past them unnoticed, looking like a harmless old ajusshi with a bicycle. Urg.

Yi-soo heads back home, where Hae-woo is waiting for him outside again. This time she asks point-blank if he ordered the hit on Joon-young’s father, and he says in his frustratingly vague way: “It could have been me.” Not the same, dude.

He does point her in the right direction though, and asks who has the most to hide. She demands to know who’s responsible, but he holds back and just says that nothing can be proven without evidence, so find evidence.

Hae-woo: “I know. I know what it is you want. Eventually you’ll destroy me too.” But she adds that as long as it’s the path to finding the truth, and as long as she’s not being fooled, she’ll take that path.

She asks one last thing—is she just a tool? Is that all she is to him? He’s got his back turned, so he does what he does best, and tamps down his emotions and answers yes. Hae-woo: “You’re cruel, Han Yi-soo.”

He turns around to face her: “I’m Kim Jun. Han Yi-soo died long ago.”

She just tells him not to get hurt anymore and walks away, the tears finally spilling out once her back is turned.

The cops find the truck abandoned, with no trace of the driver. Joon-young gets furious with Detective Byun, shouting that he’ll find the bastard himself if the cops won’t do their jobs. I was half expecting false clues to lead back to Yi-soo, but for now the truck seems to be a dead end.

Hae-woo comes home to get a change of clothes, and Grandpa conveys his regrets warmly. He worries about Hae-woo, and tells her that she’s the reason he carries on, adding another “Grandpa trusts you,” just to hammer that in.

She says, “I trust you too,” and I wonder how much she means that or just wants to believe it. Dad comes home drunk again, and when he hears about Prosecutor Oh’s hit and run, he blithely says that family’s got some kind of curse. What a prince you are.

Yi-soo sits in the dark for a while and then calls Friend to say that plans have changed.

And then when Grandpa Jo opens the newspaper the next morning, there’s a giant ad inside, asking for any information on a Chun Young-bo born in the ’30s. Ooh, nice. Why didn’t we do this from the get-go?

That must be Grandpa’s real identity, from the sudden spike in blood pressure. He has a fit and crumples up the paper in a rage.

Secretary Jang asks Yi-soo if he’s okay, not able to let on that she knows he’s been stabbed, but worried all the same. Dong-soo notes that he doesn’t look well, and asks if he’s got troubles.

Yi-soo leans in: “They’re problems I can’t share with others.” Hee, I love that he enjoys pulling Dong-soo’s leg. Dong-soo says that being different is always difficult, but adds that he wouldn’t ever treat him differently because of it. Aw. Not really gay, but it’s the thought that counts. You’re a good friend.

Yi-soo drops in on Daddy Jo and gives him an invitation to the grand opening party for the hotel that Giant stole out from under them, and says with this completely patronizing smile that he’s learned a lot from him, and Giant’s inaugural party in Seoul wouldn’t be complete without his presence.

On his way out, he exchanges a knowing bow with Daddy Jo’s secretary.

Hae-woo reaches a dead end with the search for the truck driver, and Soo-hyun says he’s clearly a professional—there’s no evidence left behind.

But just when they’ve run out of leads, the security ajusshi comes by with an envelope for Hae-woo, saying that Prosecutor Oh gave it to him last night. We see in flashback that he stopped to hand it to him, saying that if anything happens, he’s to give it to Hae-woo directly, and no one else.

She opens it… and it’s The Picture. The handwritten description on the back, “With Sang-gook,” gives her pause.

And at the same time, the housekeeper goes through the newspaper that Grandpa Jo crumpled up in such a rage, and comes upon The Ad. If you people would just pool your knowledge, you’d be way ahead in the game.

Detective Byun sees The Ad too, and he stops to check Great-Grandpa Jo’s hometown. It’s the same as the one listed in the ad…

Hae-woo rushes home and goes straight to Grandpa’s library, where she digs out a family album. She flips through it, but they’re filled with recent photos, from the time she was a baby.

She reaches the end and finds blank page after blank page, but she keeps flipping… and then finds one lone picture towards the back of the album. It’s dated 1959, and shows Grandpa and Grandma with a baby Daddy Jo.

She takes out The Picture (dated 1950) to compare, and looks back and forth between them. It’s no smoking gun, and frankly they look awfully similar, but it’s a huge step in the right direction.

She searches the bottom drawer in Grandpa’s desk, but this time she finds it unlocked and filled with nothing special. She puts the album back and heads out. The housekeeper stops her with the newspaper in hand, and shows her the ad that got Grandpa all huffy this morning. Oh good, now we’re getting somewhere.

Daddy Jo leaves his girlfriend’s house in the middle of the day, and she warns him to be careful of reporters. He manages to slip away unnoticed, but as he drives away, a gloved hand reaches toward him from the back seat. Eep.

It’s not an empty hand either—when they get out of the parking garage, the masked man sticks a gun into Daddy Jo’s ribcage.

We know it’s not Yi-soo, because he stops by the juice store to pay Yi-hyun a visit. He asks sheepishly if he scared her last night, but she doesn’t seem very put off by it, only belatedly wondering how he got her phone number. Oh crap, you mean you didn’t give it to him? Awkward.

He futzes for an answer, and says that he has a friend at the juice store’s parent company. She doesn’t seem mad that Yi-soo got her number, but she knows enough to be upset at the company, frowning that that’s an invasion of privacy.

No kidding. He should’ve prepared a better lie. Evil mastermind my ass. He asks when she gets off of work, and notes the time.

Detective Byun brings The Ad to Hae-woo’s office, and she seems perturbed that he’s on the same trail. He says that this Chun Young-bo’s hometown is the same as Grandpa Jo’s, but she argues that lots of people are from that town.

He says it’s weird because Chun Young-bo is dead, and that fact is public record… which means that the purpose of The Ad lies elsewhere. He traced the source, and says it’s the same pattern as the telescope—a chain of favors, all paid in cash.

They agree to go to Grandpa’s hometown to do some digging. She gets up and almost says something, but decides against it, and notably keeps The Picture and the album search to herself.

Junichiro stops by for a visit and asks Yi-soo out for drinks. He turns him down because he has a prior engagement… and then we cut to Daddy Jo squirming in a chair, tied up and duck-taped.

He’s being filmed, and then we see the feed play on Yi-soo’s TV. Oh no, he IS behind it.

Yi-hyun gets off of work and finds Soo-hyun waiting outside to drive her home. Dude, right after Oppa stopped by to ask what time she was done? Fishy, fishy.

He insists and practically has to drag her into the car, but once she’s home she thanks him. Out of the blue he asks, “You like me, don’t you? I like you too, so it’s okay if you like me.” Pfffft. Who says things like that?

He leaves her flabbergasted, and then she taps on the window so she can set him straight: “I don’t.” He just smiles at her and drives away, and then once she’s alone, Yi-hyun cracks a tiny smile. Aw, you DO like him.

Suddenly the air turns ominous. Someone’s watching her. Ack. It’s Clicky! Not the baby sister! He starts to approach from across the alley, but Mom comes out to meet her just in time, and they head inside before he can get any closer. Phew.

Meanwhile, Joon-young discovers that Daddy Jo has been missing all day and calls Hae-woo to let her know. She asks him to keep calling around, and follows a hunch: Yi-soo.

She waits outside for him to get in his car and follows him, but she’s not exactly stealthy about it, and he sees her right on his tail.

Grandpa Jo sees that someone’s touched the family album and left it sitting askance on the shelf, but before he can check it out he gets a video message on his phone. He opens it, and it’s his son strapped to a chair and pleading for his life.

He immediately gets a phone call from a man with a distorted voice, but we see that it’s Yi-soo on the other end of the line. He asks if he got his present, and Grandpa Jo asks what the hell he wants.

Yi-soo says it’s simple—all he has to do is confess everything he’s done to the public. Grandpa Jo pretends he doesn’t understand, and Yi-soo says he knows full well: “You’re a fake. Because you killed the real Jo Sang-gook.”

Grandpa Jo laughs that this desperate stunt is because he doesn’t actually have any proof to back what he’s saying. But what he doesn’t know is that Yi-soo is playing this whole conversation for Daddy Jo to hear. Someone enters the warehouse…

And from his car, Yi-soo asks Grandpa Jo again—the truth or his son’s life?

 
COMMENTS

I didn’t much care that Daddy Jo was kidnapped because I have zero sympathy for the hapless buffoon, but I really enjoyed the twist that he was let in on the conversation. Because IF he survives, he’s petty and vindictive enough to turn on his father. I have my doubts that Yi-soo will actually go so far as to kill him, but I do often find myself wishing he were that dark, if only because the conflicts that we’ve been set up for in this drama seem to dance around that line but never cross it fully.

In general I’m happy with the developments in this episode, because the net is closing in around Grandpa Jo, and Hae-woo is on the fast track to imploding. She’s simultaneously learning more about her grandfather while falling deeper for Yi-soo, and when those two paths converge… well, kablooey. In that respect, I sort of wanted her to get a little farther with the family album. I feel like the conclusion that they reach in this episode about The Picture—that Grandpa Jo killed the real Sang-gook and stole his identity—was fairly straightforward and the outcome we all expected. On the one hand, I’m glad we finally got the answer, but on the other, I’m a little disappointed that there wasn’t another twist, given how much story time was spent on the goddamn photo.

My question is why we’ve left Clicky in the wind, when his identity is finally known. Maybe Yi-soo is cooking up some extra special torment for him, considering he’s the man who killed his father, but right now I’m more worried about Yi-hyun, and clearly he’s worried about her too if he’s checking on her every night with lame excuses (and maybe possibly sending Soo-hyun to drive her home, unless that was a red herring).

In any case, I’m actually looking forward to Yi-hyun being sucked into the big mess, not only because it raises the stakes in a great way, but because she’s Hae-woo x 10,000 when it comes to cutting through Yi-soo’s cold exterior. Not that I wouldn’t mind if we took our time chipping away at him with kisses. But surely if his little sister’s life is on the line, he’ll cut the crap and just run to her rescue, right?

I really liked this episode, because its easier to put things together.

It was obvious that grandpa Jo was a fake a few episodes back to me. It's interesting about how much Hae Woo has to dive into her family's past. Soon she'll have to confront her grandfather, someone who she thinks would never take part in the mystery surrounding Han Yi Soo's 'death' (Yi Soo himself refuses to let Hae Woo call him that, reminding her that he is now Kim Joon)

I really liked the beginning where there's a short conversation with clicky haha. I don't know, clicky just creeps me out to no end. I find it intriguing how no one thinks someone as old as he is capable of committing the crimes he has (Trust me, clicky is the reason I am more...aware of elderly. Kidding, well, sort of.

There are more questions arising with this episode but I can't wait to watch more. At the beginning of this show, I didn't really like the slow pacing of it all. But I think that was what kept me going. To answer the question: What'll happen next? Gotta love mystery stuff.

I feel like so many things are going on I this show, I forget about tiny details that later become important. The importance of clicky was there like, from the very beginning but I agree, Yi Soo just let's the guy be (for now is what I'm thinking. The guy has to get what's coming to him or I won't be happy)

Can't wait for more people to discover that Yi Soo is Kim Joon.

(I'd say more but I feel like I'm rambling so I'll end it here)

Thanks for the recap!

I'm more curious about how they handle the clicky assasin story line...
He is so damn scary... I got scare everytime he is on screen... his appeareance fooled everyone... No wonder police officer not put even a little suspicious on him when he walk cross the Police car. I hope they will explore his character more... In fact.. he seems the real villain rather than granpa Jo... lol

Is he really only work for granpa Jo?

Just want to say... I LOVE THIS SHOW...! Maybe there is a reason the slow pace in the first half (I actually loved epi 2-3 alot... It's eventful....) .. I Almost give up on this show... but choose not to due to my love for writers-director work in the past and I heard this is their last revenge - drama (?)

I really love the directing and the score... the suspense...
I love the acting, too....

I hope they will explore Ha Suk Jin storyline... he can do a conflict man pretty well.

I'm not a fan of revenge dramas, but find myself watching both Shark and Heartless City (plus IHYV which is a bit revengy). I started 'cause my friends at DB were talking about them on OT, and I stayed because they are good shows.

I must say I've become Kim Nam Gil's fan girl thanks to Shark (given that I haven't watched any of his dramas before). I like the way he acts with his eyes. They expresses so much :)

I'm loving Hae-woo as a heroine, but in this episode, I feel like she tries to find a way to deny the connecting dots as they dig deeper to the past, with evidence pointing here and there. I have faith that she will do the right things in the end, even though the truth might destroy her (like she said).

I wholeheartedly agree with you! Well, aside from the fangirling (I'm a guy, but that doesn't mean I don't like KNG!).
Well aside from that, I just think she doesn't want to rip a piece of what has already become a part of her. Her grandfather is a highly respected man, no part of her wishes to get to know the deceitful man behind that mask. But yes, I definitely agree that she will do the right thing, because Hae Woo is by far one of my favourite heroines, and justice is something she strives for, or looks for.

You don't have to watch from the beginning - he starts appearing in 20-something episode... His storyline was secondary but his acting was so unusually gripping that he became the main lead.

It was pretty superb acting by KNG just before he went in for the kiss on the couch. The subtle change in his expression turned him back into the "real" Yi Soo who so longed for Hae Woo. I found that scene very impactful - impressive KNG.

Thanks for the recap, GF!

For a photo that's been missing for these last episodes, just how many did Detective Oh run off on the copy machine - it's like everyone has a copy now. Every time an envelope gets delivered, guess what's in it?

I've been trying to keep up with this convoluted plot and the various twists and turns, but I just don't get why, since we've discovered that Mr. Clicky is behind all the murders of people that Gramps wants to off, why in the heck is the bloody "O" on each corpse? I thought that Yi-soo was supposedly leaving it as his sign for Hae-woo to keep looking for The Truth? So, if Clicky is the killer, then why is he leaving the big, bloody "O"?

Confused, I am...

I must be the only one who didn't see the grandfather being fake. :D For me it came as a genuine surprise - a surprise I liked a LOT. Because at first I thought that there was simply some shady stuff he had done during the independence movement, maybe betrayed his father or whatever but this! I think it's awesome. He's not who he says at all. Years living in a lie! Years living fearing somebody would recognize him, somebody would blow his cover. Yeah, clearly he hasn't been stressing about it too much but it can't be something he never thinks about it at all. Basically, he can never really relax and must go further and further to cover the truth.

I honestly love this show to pieces. I never minded it being slow at all nor did I even really feel that way. For me it was more like contemplating, building up to something grand and now it has started to deliver and stuff it delivers... WHOA. I even care about the drunken daddy. Yes, he's annoying and petty but nobody just becomes that way. It really makes me interested in father-son relationship and what made daddy this way. He clearly fears his father while also craving for his love and approval which he never gets - but why? I mean, he wasn't born drunk and stupid.

Not all characters are awesome, some are just fillers like sec Jang whom I don't understand much but I just mostly ignore her. However, the most important characters are really well fleshed out. I know people have been complaining about Yi Soo, but I like even him. Yes, we know quite little about the exact things that transpired during "the lost years" and we got rather little emotions in previous episodes, but I liked him being a big mystery. It was Hae Woo's time to shine, he was in shadows. Also, I like what they've done with the hubby. Now he has a genuine conflict, too. Not to mention grand daddy finally loosing his cool, finally being a one step behind instead of masterminding everything behind his desk. And for me it looked like he DID care for his son. It wasn't only that somebody had outmaneuvered him but it was his son who was in danger and it pained him although probably not enough to go public about his deeds which will probably lead to great conflict because like GF I don't believe daddy will be killed.

And finally, the kiss... Ok, now I ship these two in earnest. I know I should be dissing Hae-Woo for cheating her hubby but I... don't. It's just for me Hae-Woo and hubby seem more like brother and sister. They're close but there's no sexual chemistry what so ever. I found sex scene in the beginning of drama to be rather awkward for this reason. However, Hae-Woo's chemistry with Yi-Soo... Together these could make water burn, I'm pretty sure.

I've already seen episode 14 and it made me love this drama even more, but I won't go there now. Huh. :)

Note for Loving drunken daddy, too...
On the surface he looks bad, but at least he is not hiding something. He is honest and always true to his color... After the hit-and-run accident has been revealed, he is the most honest char without something to hide any longer... In fact, I feel bad for him. All the blame hit-and-run accident goes to him... The writers doing a good job makes him a sympathy char without showing us his conscience for me

He is right... It's not his fault YS's father got killed. The only his mistakes is he is not telling the truth about the incident. and makes YS's father the culprit.

I didn't see Grampa Jo being a fake, either, so I was totally taken by surprise and I loved it, too. Like I said in my comment, now that the shit has hit the fan, I want to see it splatter in a satisfying manner, and I don't want to wait forever to see it splattering.

You're right, Daddy Jo wasn't born drunk and stupid. I suspect he bought into the world kissing his ass because he's rich and slacked off as a result, which is where the 'stupid' came from, and the 'drunk' came in when people kissed his ass and let him get away with all sorts of things because he's rich. His father disapproved of living that way and Daddy Jo, who loved being comfortable and not working hard a little too much, whined and made excuses. There were some parenting mistakes on Grampa Jo's end, like bribing cops and prosecutors and making problems go away. I don't like Daddy Jo and think the best thing to do with him is bundle him off to a cottage somewhere in the middle of nowhere and have him telecommute as co-CEO. The silent co-CEO. The one who isn't seen in public, because someone who understands how to be diplomatic and the finer points of when to keep your mouth shut was found to handle the 'public face of Gaya' portion of the role.

So out of the blue heroine asks hero if she is just a tool? Another personality transplant? Isn't this all supposedly all beyond you never really loved me? If not, all she has said is bs.

Just as bad is the bleeding on the white sofa.

Looming, the pure pornography of evil people hunting an innocent young woman, no different in evil than child porn. But what's the problem of woman/child porn if it successfully baits the audience? It's just fiction, right? So what if the porn doesn't even make sense in fiction wold? Writers and producers serve higher gods. Evil is one of their best tools. Preshussssssssss. Yes yes preshussssssss.

I'm pretty much as baffled as you are... Of course Hae-Woo still cares for Yi-Soo. Of course she doesn't want to be mere tool! People often have multiple desires and wishes, sometimes even conflicting ones. Wanting a one thing doesn't mean wanting another thing is any less important.

Geesh that comment.

Hae Woo, according to the story, knows YS is killing people, suspects that YS's agenda will destroy her life, has had a conversation about going into hell and destroying everything in order to save/restore YS, assumes she may have to destroy YS and her own family in the process, knows that YS can't keep away from her and she can't be around him because the chemistry is too strong, has been repeatedly warned by him to stay out of it. And she suddenly needs reassurance that he really cares? Nonsense. Being angry something inside him is dead, ok. Being angry that he is sacrificing his love for her for a revenge that will destroy her and everything he loves as well as what he hates, ok. But to not know she is more than a tool to him? Silly nonsense. Stuck in because the producer is monitoring audience reactions as they go.

As to the violence against women porn, anyone who watches 36 and is not repelled likes violence against women porn. The plot set up for that titillating violence against a young woman makes all the sense that the "plot" makes in porn movies. I predict most commenters here will relish the passions it triggers. Salacious. Porn.

I'm going to reiterate my point. HuH? Okay.

The great thing about this drama is that the characters are multidimensional, especially with regards to Hae Woo. Don't get so upset about the characters not sticking to the run-of-the-mill stereotypes.

I also have no idea what your comparison to porn is about.

i think the reason hae woo asked ys for assurance was because she knew he would lie to her which would allow her to develop a little more emotional distance between herself and ys after their recent kiss hw is trying to adhere to the ost theme she is trying to impart walls between her heart and ys she knows he will oblige her with hurtful words given how he reacted prior to their kiss

Oh yes, it's minor but I think Viki translated that the guy who stabbed Yi Soo in the carpark said that it was "Jo Ui Seon", not Grandpa Jo?? I didn't hear it properly, but that's going by the subs... not that I really care which Papa Jo ordered it... actually I thought that stabbing attempt was just thrown in so that YS would get some TLC from HW leading up to the kiss.... hehe.

So did Good Drama. Besides, it would make no sense for grandpa to order a random guy to stab Yi Soo. If he wanted Yi Soo dead, he already has a masterful assassin in his disposal.

I also thought it was Daddy Jo and not Grandpa Jo who sent the assassin. That's why Daddy Jo looked so shocked to see a very much alive Yi Soo delivering an invitation.

By far, ep 13 is my favourite. The pace is intense, the stakes are raised and emotions heightened on all fronts. The reveals are conveyed smoothly without feeling as though they were force-fed to plug some gaping holes. By some very clever directing and editing, it's now fairly obvious our dear 'Chingu' is nondescript Soo Hyun. What interests me is how YS and SH met and what's in it for SH to go to such great lengths (of kidnaps and possibly murders) to assist YS.

I was almost secretly hoping for both YS and HW to reach a point of no return with that one kiss, and for Grandpa Jo to sacrifice his own son to protect his secret, which would then bring the resonance of the major theme of betrayal to the highest. Unfortunately, harmless threats were made and the PD stopped short of shocking my drama sensibilities. What a shame.

HW's world continued its downward spiral as she finally discovered the person she respected the most might be the key to the whole problem. I said it before that HW's story had the capacity to develop into a stronger, more tragic arc than YS's given her love ones have all betrayed her, one way or another (with the exception of JY). Her steely resolve to get to the truth is commendable but it's also taking away her humanity. It was exactly HW's vulnerability and palpable emotions that was the saving grace of the show when we couldn't see beyond the black hole enveloping YS in past episodes. But she's coming so close to becoming a super robot, tuned in only to the logic of the truth and getting disconnected with her emotions. You can say I was becoming emotionally estranged from her, just like I was to YS.

But as sudden as it seemed, the tables were turned, and YS did a double take. He's suddenly human again. Yes, there's still the old hurt, the desire to hurt and resolve to hide the pain behind a cold facade. But it's all melting as the hunter caught onto its prey. And wait, what was that I saw? An upward curve of the lips that s-l-o-w-l-y parted to reveal a set of teeth, and it's a smile!! It's a smile!! Not a smirk, mind you, a real smile! The long awaited emotions, expressions and make-sense dialogues from YS. Thank you, drama-God, for answering my prayers!

YS's behaviour hugely contrasted with Grandpa Jo's outrage and unease at having his secret possibly discovered by HW. Is YS's win thus a foregone conclusion? But why am I perturbed after hearing yet another one of HW's plea to YS gone unheeded?

I thought I finally caught Grandpa Jo telling the truth when he clasped both HW's hands and said she's his hope. At that one instance, it explained that the one most important person that he wanted to protect is HW herself. And for that, he's willing to go to great lengths to keep her safe (from the truth). Even the vilest of all baddies is coming clean with his heartfelt feelings. We are going to a good place from here.

I feel like more recently his emotions are coming more naturally and expected. He's slowly cracking.
So, i'm not complaining about the disconnect from yi soo as much as i was for the first half.
Plus, kim nam gil has gotten more attractive recently and it's probably also because he's grown on me, pornstache and all.

Prison, rehabilitation and a switch to a love for dolphins?

Things happen. Kissing ensues. Truth is revealed. Yi soo dies and we have a time jump where in three years, HW is running around with a baby Yi-soo, and we are not really sure WHO the father is....am I right?

Wow! A lot happening in this episode. The show is heading steadily and inexorably toward the finish line – and I have a feeling it’s going to be an explosive one. At least, I hope so. After all this sturm und drag and drama, I’d hate to think it ends “not with a bang, but a whimper.”

So, the big reveal. Grandpa Jo killed someone and took his identity? I suppose killing someone is pretty extreme, but like other viewers, I was hoping for some more complex backstory to the betrayal. Someone here mentioned the possibility of him having been a traitor who aided the Japanese as opposed to a Korean hero; I think that would have made a very nice, ironic twist. I’ll keep faith with the “Shark” team that there’s a few more surprises in store.

As for my heroine Hae-Woo, I have to admit, I’m really disappointed in her. First, kissing Yi-Soo was.not.cool. I get all the emotion that’s there, but she’s married to the world’s most perfect husband. Reign in your hormones, girl! Also, I know there’s going to be a certain amount of denial about Grandpa Jo – that’s only natural –but the evidence is mounting to an alarming extent. She’s got to face up to his involvement at this point.

Poor Joon-Young really made me feel for him – I wonder if he needs someone to comfort him in his time of sorrow ;)?

As for Clicky, he continues to freak me out. Does anyone else here read the Wall Street Journal? There was an editorial interview in this past weekend’s edition with a North Korean escapee who continually agitates for the South to intervene in bringing down the North’s regime, and he tries to send balloons with information, food, etc. to North Korea (very interesting interview, as a side note). Anyway, this man said that the North tries to kill him frequently, and one time they almost got him with –wait for it- a poison pen! It’s a real thing! When I read that, I exclaimed out loud, “Oh my God, it’s Clicky!” (As a side note, hubby was reading the same paper and asked in a confused voice, “huh?”).

I know I sound like a broken record, but I really want to know what Grandpa Jo did to Junichiro. Also, I think we need to watch out for Secretary Kang – hell hath no fury and all that . . .

I cannot believe there are only 3 episodes of “Shark” left. I want to see how it will all end, but I’ll be sad when it does.

At least I said something about betrayl although I didn't hope for "more complex" backstory. I think living sobody else's life for decades IS pretty complex on it's own. However, this doesn't mean, there could've been a betrayal too as we do not know who grandpa was before he became Jo Sang gook. Well, ok, we know his home village and name, but we do not know whether he was part of the independence movement, a Korean who sided with Japanese or what. He could've betrayed great fighter Jo to Japanese who killed him & his son and assume son't identity afterwards. Or he could've been in team with Japanese being one of the killers deciding to ditch them and join the movement for whatever reason using the falce identity. There are many options.

Personally, I wasn't disappointed with the heroine because of the kiss. To be honest, I think that people who have not experienced this kind of situations should not throw rocks. And by "situation" I do not mean one's past lovet emerging from the dead but simply a situation where one really NEEDS to use all his/her will power not to do something shady with a member of opposite sex. A situation where one WANTED so badly to say yes, where one was ALMOST there, where the other person was almost basically coming onto her/him - and he/she said no. And left. Then one can throw rocks. If one hasn't experienced it, one shouldn't judge so easily because no one can tell for sure how they would act in such situation. There's countless amount of those people who would've never believed they'd cheat in anyway and one day they find out to their horror that they were wrong.

(Also, to be clear, I'm not talking about you Faye but about my general attitude towards comdemning cheating people. I do not know anything about you so I won't say anything about you.)

I do feel for Joon-Young but honestly Hae-Woo's kiss was only a minor complaint from me about her actions towards him. She's been lying to him constantly now and is probably so deep in the wed that it's very difficult to untangle everything without severely hurting Joon-yuong. Good thing is I can understand her reasoning and by every lie it becomes easier to lie and more difficult to tell the truth but that is the thing that really undermines their marriage, not one kiss.

Clicky is very creepy, I agree. Like you I'm very interested in how Junichiro and grandpa Jo are linked but same goes for Clicky. It's damn clear he doesn't kill for money - guy drives a cheap bike and practically lives in his measly book store! So what's the gist? Why is he doing all this for grandpa Jo?

Also, Shark is 20 episode drama so luckily there are 7 episodes left, not only 3. :)

I thought it was a 16-episode one - thanks for clarifying that it was 20! That makes me excited :).

Regarding the "don't judge until you've been in that situation" - obviously I've never been in that exact situation, but I think you'd be hard-pressed to find anybody who hasn't been faced with temptation at some point. And it is possible to use self-control to resist. So while I'm not saying we should brand Hae-Woo with a scarlet A, I do have high standards for her, and she disappointed me here.

I think the "don't judge until you've been there argument" is kind of a cop-out in general, because once you start down that road, you can pretty much justify anything you haven't experienced, right down to Grandpa Jo's murdering to keep his position. This is not a knock against you, I just feel that argument is played out. As people we have to make character judgements, or else we have no objective standards of right or wrong. And it becomes harder to emotionally connect to the characters if we can't make value judgements about them.

To clarify my post, I don't think the kiss alone was a betrayal of Joon-Young. Much as I love Hae-Woo, I've been critical all along of her continuing and deepening deception of her husband. I think the straw is the kiss that broke the camel's back for me. Hopefully all is not lost, though? I know I'm probably in the minority in wanting Hae-Woo to end up with Joon-Young, but I'm okay with that. I watched Downton Abbey and I wanted Lady Mary to end up with evil newspaper magnate, not wishy-washy Matthew Crawley, so I'm used to fellow-viewer abuse :).

To some extent I agree but I still do think that it's just so easy to judge if one has not faced temptation her/himself... Of course most people have probably met some tempting members of opposite sex but it's quite different to be in a situation that cannot escalate right there (like in a work place) than in a situation where only a very thin line separates one from shady business. It's so much more easier to say no in the first situation than in the second.

Anyhow, we probably do agree about Hae-Woo's deepening deception of her husband, as you say. Her motives are, mostly, benevolent as she's trying to shield Joon-Young from pain but once he finds out he won't see it that way and quite rightfully so. It's also very patronizing because Joon-Young has a right to know, he deserves to know. It's rather hypocritical to be after the truth while denying it from others. On the other hand, the fact that Hae-Woo knows who Yi-Soo is, is mostly just a selfish lie. I'm not quite sure will their marriage survive all this even if Hae-Woo wouldn't want to be with Yi-Soo (or couldn't) in the end. Joon-Young is going to lose all his trust in Hae-Woo and building it up again will be a major task.

However, I haven't really chosen a definitive ship here. I like HW-YS dynamic very much and this couple is absolutely sizzling togethed, but on the other hand, HW and JY are nice, cozy and gentle with each other. Buuuut on the other hand, I just get more sibling than couple vibes from this pairing... so I don't really know. :P

I have to admit I am a bit confused by Hae-Woo. In the beginning it seemed like she really loved her husband, but now she is close to betraying him and continues to deceive him for unknown reasons. And if she is a prosecutor, she does not seem to be doing much in the way of prosecutor-type things.

I don't think it is love that she felt towards her oppa but gratitude that he stayed by her side. It's the usual logic-vs-love contradiction for her. Logic + gratitude made her marry JY. Love + quest for truth made her live on for YS.

I know! I was just thinking that the other day. There are so many K-dramas that enjoyed huge ratings but were just so brainless to me (even if entertaining). And I don't have a problem with the occasional guilty-pleasure show, but it pains me when good-quality dramas don't get the ratings, because that lessens the chance of us seeing more of them.

Actually, I have that issue with American shows, too, now that I think about it :).

Thanks very much for the recap, girlfriday!

This episode was so intense and fast-moving. I'm quite a fan of KNG ever since I watched him in Queen SD...his Bidam was wonderful. I do like him in this drama, though I don't care for his hairstyle...bangs a tad too long that it takes away from his good looks...too "prim" and staid... my opinion...

Yi Soo's scenes with Hae Woo are intense, as their sizzling chemistry literally jumps off the screen for me. However, as much as I enjoy watching these two interact, my favorite scenes have been those between Yi Soo and his little sis, Yi Hyun!! He is a totally different person around her--- I absolutely love watching his cute awkwardness, tentative, flustered and adorably sweet moments with her.

I can't wait until little sis knows the truth...am prepping to cry in a major way...in relief and gladness. Am hoping madly that she'll be safe from Clicky Criminal...Gracious, this guy give me the creeps!!

Buhaha GF you always end up recapping the great episodes. Does this mean you'll be helping heads recap shark until the end of its run?

Why are there not more rave about that hot kiss? I mean really, dam kim nam gil just goes right for those kisses like it's the same thing as breathing.
I thought the LOOK he gave hae woo before he went in for the kiss was even hotter than the kiss itself, which was pretty hot.
Too bad that was so wrong -- for her hubbie, i mean.

I thought this was a much better episode than the rest. It could also be because we're headed towards finale and show is finally bringin' it for the second half. Shark was always good for the slow reveals of mysteries, but the excitement factor was always sort of lacking for me. This episode gave me more than the rest did. We're finally getting paid off after being loyal followers of Shark, and i'm excited to finally get to the end.
With you along for the ride, too, GF! :)

likemangos, read my comment above. KNG hits hard, nuclear destruction of the heart, with his acting. And suddenly Shark becomes full of meaning and addictive. Although HW's dilemma in previous episodes was moving, KNG actually swings this episode to new heights.

The same happened to me when I watched QSD - who is this unfortunate clown in grab, engrossed in eating chicken and picking nose? And then it was his eyes, and half-smile, a sadness with hope and love. Bidam!

KNG is magic.

Maybe Grandpa Jo was a spy, so he betrayed the Koreans and decided that he'd work with the opposing side. He seems like the kind of person who is an 'every man for himself' kind of thing. He doesn't care as long as he himself is safe from harm's way. Imagine if he refuses to save his son. I agree that it would be interesting if Daddy Jo is left unscathed. If he knows his father betrayed him, surely he'll do something that may reveal the truth. Maybe Daddy Jo will learn the truth. But he still has fear against Grandpa Jo so I don't know...just random speculation lol. American spy? Japanese? I don't know, but he has to have some sort of connection with the Japanese because of the Giant group's chairman.

When I watch other dramas, I just laze down on my couch, go every now and then to get water and stuff, but when I watch this drama, my eyes are glued to the tv and I always sit straight up. It's so tense. I mean sometimes I know what's going to happen because it's so obvious, but the writer's been creative about adding little twists here and there. i LOVE it. seriously.

I loved the conversation between YS and Clicky at the beginning of the show.

I loved how the kiss was handled. It was so painful, so sad, so wrong yet so beautiful. The look on their faces when HW looked back after YS called her name was so heartbreaking for me.

I loved the lighter moments of the show: between YS and Dong Soo, between YS and his sister.

I love how consistently petty and shallow daddy Jo is. I remember him playing the retired detective in Mawang, it's fun to watch him in a different role now.

Is that so?

I think the opposite. Hae Woo choose to marry him is not due to love.... She seems admire him as a great husband figure and she want to convince herself she really make a good decision.
It's obvious for her countless times choose to investigated YS's case related instead spent her time with her husband in their first night. And it's not normal for a woman still mourn her first love after her wedding night.(I remember so uncomfortable with her decision neglecting her husband) How many people in real life marry a man they don't really love right? Beside... She thought yi soo already died.

She become a prosecutor is due to Yi Soo's dream to become prosecutor and his case involved. And now it makes sense if she start protecting him, she is waiting for yi soo to stop and give him a chance to forget and start to live a normal life. After she has experience losing YS..... I understand her... Off course what she has done is not right.

I didn't understand why he left the clicky dude free and single! The minute I would have realized the connection, he would be dead. Yes, it definitely was a turn around on what was beginning to be a flat-line drama; this episode definitely picked up things. Yes, I was pleasantly surprised too that Daddy Jo was privy to the conversation. Let's hope Yi Soo has a full recording too. Hae Woo (useless) won't believe what she hears let alone what she hears. But the best line from this episode was when she saw her father and said 'Opa' and he said 'Who are You?' I laughed so hard! Yet, bitter, party of one! So funny!
